Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to two counts of driving under the influence in connection to a car accident that he had on May 28.
Pelosi’s blood alcohol level was above the legal limit at .082, and he failed a field sobriety test after the accident, in which his Porshe collided with a Jeep in Napa Valley.
“He was unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong odor of an alcohol beverage emanating from his breath,” the complaint against Paul alleges.
In reality, his blood alcohol was probably far above .082 because the blood test was delayed by several hours, according to reports.
While both drivers declined medical treatment at the scene of the accident, the Jeep’s driver later complained of headaches and and pain in his upper right side as a result of the accident.
